Butterflies & Meerkats at the Melbourne Zoo

It has been over a month since my last confession (I mean post). Been sick with a dry cough for over a month, and I just came back from a short holiday in Tasmania (which helped me to recover a great deal). Anyway, want to post a few pictures to share with everyone.

First topic is Melbourne Zoo. Those of you who followed my blog would know that I went there in March. One picture I sadly missed then was picture of butterflies. This was my priority one this time. Unfortunately, I quickly learnt that it was not easy. I don't have a macro lens, didn't know how to follow these butterflies and other useful information (I later learnt) for this kind of photography. Anyway, here is one of them. Hope you enjoy it. It has been enhanced.

The tiger and dolphin enclosures were closed but there were a number of other really interesting attractions like lion feeding, female elephants fighting over a male elephant. Watch out for them when you plan to visit the Melbourne Zoo.

I love the look of these little meerkats. They are real exhibitionists. Enjoy.
